    Default Does WHM install JDK / JRE / Java at all?

    Hi -

    I'm becoming more familiar with WHM by playing around with it a lot, but so far I've not seen in the manual or a logic path to install Java. Is this available in the current version of WHM/cPanel?

    Thanks,
    Phil

    Hello

    This if available in the current version. You can install java with my manual

    1- Install Tomcat in plugins of WHM
    2- Configure /scripts/easyapache with Tomcat Module and rebuild apache
    3- Excecute /scripts/upcp --force
    4- Install servlets cliente.
    5- Finish

    Greetings

    Please do not install the Tomcat Plugin. Use only the EasyApache method.

    What is Java called in EasyApache? I'm just not seeing it. Thanks!

    Java would not be listed in EasyApache. Tomcat, which serves JSP pages, would. Installing Tomcat will install the JDK (which contains the JRE) for you.

    If you are not experienced administering a Tomcat server, you may wish to hire an experienced Tomcat administrator to maintain Tomcat on your server.

    What is the benefit of Tomcat? Is Tomcat redundant to NGiNX? Thanks...

    cPanel/WHM does not support Nginx natively at this time. If you want to use Nginx to provide JSP capabilities and Nginx supports that, you are welcome to attempt this at your own risk.

    Tomcat is an application server. It can be used in conjunction with a HTTP server, such as Apache, NGinx or lighttpd. Tomcat can also be used standalone. Without something like Tomcat, it is difficult or impossible to provide Java Servlet support for your users that need it.

    We need to install this: http://www.123livehelp.com for the client - Live Chat service, which uses JRE. In fact JRE comes bundled with it. Is it safe to install/run it in a way described in it's manual (destined for an ordinary linux installation, without WHM/cPanel running on it)? Or one needs to install that Tomcat anyway (pretty afraid of it)?

    Just to follow up, we installed Tomcat using EasyApache and now all of our Java apps work brilliantly. I don't know if it's safe in your hands, but in our hands installing Tomcat via EasyApache sorted our Java needs.

    We are currently running the Current Version (i.e. Not Release and Not Edge...) I hope this helps.
